Updates on City of San José Services and/or Operations
- Park Amenities Closed to Protect Public Health: To slow and reduce the spread of COVID-19, the City of San José needs you to follow the County’s physical distancing orders and stay out of closed facilities in parks. This includes tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields, playgrounds, park benches, all dog parks, picnic and barbeque areas, and restrooms. Park visitors should not jump over or remove fencing to access closed areas. If public health and safety rules are not followed, the City will close parks.
Update from the County of Santa Clara
- Data Dashboard Update: Followers of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department’s COVID-19 data dashboards may have noticed a recent jump in the numbers of confirmed cases and deaths. The Public Health Department has updated its record of confirmed cases and deaths with a new methodology. Cases will now be reported by the date of specimen collection rather than the date that confirmed positive results were reported. This moves the timing of reporting confirmed cases and deaths a few days earlier, and the change means that the numbers recently increased suddenly from 1,870 confirmed cases and 73 confirmed deaths as of April 17, to 1,922 confirmed cases and 83 deaths as of April 20.
